Alpkit Gourdon 30L Backpack

Alpkit Gourdon 30L Backpack

Found 21st Dec 2012
The Alpkit Gourdon is a brilliant backpack. It has a simple design, which means that you get the maximum storage space for the minimum weight. It has a roll top, which means that they are completely waterproof. It comes in 3 sizes (20L, 25L and 30L). There is space to fit a Camelbak-type hydration bladder. Some of them also have a clear plastic panel so that you can see the contents.

The 30L size is fine as carry on luggage with most airlines. The 20L model has some extra mesh pockets on the outside.

Alpkit have excellent customer service. I bought one of these bags a few years ago. One of the straps became detached when it was about 3 or 4 years old, and they repaired it for free, even though I told them that it was my fault rather than a manufacturing defect.

This is the "normal" price for these bags. However, they have been out of stock for the last 6 months or so, and today is the first day with them back in stock. The price includes postage, but if you want it delivered in time for Christmas, place your order by 2pm today, and select the £4 upgrade for City Link, who should (may?) then deliver it on Monday.

thanks agree amazing service
Best customer service of any shop anywhere. fact! You even get a nice little handwritten thank you note from Jim in with every order
They are a very good company, their customer service is friendly and excellent and their products first class. I have the 20L Gourdon which is very good but features straight rather than S shoulder straps so does dig in if you are using it for cycling.
